What do you teach at Forest Lake Academy
Why do you like teaching at FLA?
I love seeing moments where students become more aware of Christ’s character and what he has done in their lives.
How do you teach a Christian Worldview in your classes at FLA?
We study scripture deeply in class which allows students to see how God and his people interacted in the past and learn to apply those lessons to how we should interact in the present
What is a unique experience, talent or interest that you bring to your classroom to help shape the learning experience of your students?
Understanding the differences in learners and how you need so many different methods to reach different students in a way that is meaningful and comfortable to them.
What sets FLA students apart from students in other schools?
In my experience with other schools, FLA students have an energy and enthusiasm that is not seen elsewhere.
How do you accomplish the mission of FLA to instill in our students love and service for God, respect for self and others, intellectual growth and a Christ-like character in your role at FLA?
Instilling Christ-like character in students starts with demonstrating it in my life. While I often fall short of Christ’s amazing standards I start out each day in prayer that I can help them see God’s image in me and in themselves.
What do you want your students to gain from having known you?
I want them to gain a lifelong appreciation for studying God’s word and building a relationship with Christ.
